    WHEN A COP SLEEPS!!!!

    "When a Cop Sleeps"




    Sometimes when a cop sleeps, the
    demons come.
    The demons bring all the things you want to forget.

    The
    demons bring the tears and sweat, the spit and the blood.
    Oh God the
    blood.

    The demons bring the broken bodies from the wrecks
    the
    sickening smell of death and the kids...
    Oh God please, not the
    kids.

    Mainly the demons bring the eyes...

    the hatred and
    desperation in the eyes of the people you fight,
    the pleading and pain of the
    people you try to help,
    and the quiet and blankness in death of the ones you
    couldn't.

    The demons bring sounds too....

    the sounds of tires
    skidding and metal crunching from the wrecks,
    the gunshots that seem so loud
    on TV yet so muffled on the street,
    the screams and crying that all blend
    together after a while.

    The demons won't leave...
    Alcohol and sleeping
    pills work for a while but they come back.

    Some have used their own
    deaths to flee from them,
    but most of us are scared that in causing our own
    death....
    we'll be with them forever.

    But the demons aren't all that
    bad,
    it's better for the demons to come in your sleep,
    than for the angels
    to come during your shift.

    (they say that if you're time comes on the
    job,
    your fallen brothers come back to take you home)

    So the next
    time you see a cop having a bad day and he seems irritated,
    and you think
    "What a jerk!"
    Stop for a moment and wonder:

    What demons came to him
    last night or what new ones did he meet today?

    Sir,
    Thanks for this post. It good to know that someone understands. My deamons come each night. I've worked more cases in my sleep that I did my whole career. They wake me with a fast beating heart, and rob me of rest. I really loved my career, and I guess that's why six year after I was forced to retire they are still here. Don't know the answer. I'm disabled now and can't do much physically. I still have the knowledge and the desire to serve, but my body won't respond. Thanks for listening.

    I'm glad it brought you comfort and I could help out in just the smallest way. That is what being a member of the BROTHERHOOD is all about.
